Well, it isn't the devil but hell did my heart pound when this guy landed in front of the camouflage. I have been shooting with flashes, but I would like to share this silhouette with you first. Perhaps I'll post a nice flight shot later on. This is however, how I normally see the Eagle Owl, Bubo bubo, - silhouetted against the dark night sky. Adding to the scene, the male was sitting close by hooting its melancholic cries.
Shooting with the D3 at night is brilliant, with calibrated colours even at 1600 ISO, and very little noise. The picture above have no noise reduction.

In 2006 National Geographic’s Traveler Magazine ranked the world’s most-visited world heritage sites according to how well they safeguard the distinctive features that qualified them for UNESCO status. The West Norwegian Fjords topped the list, ahead of destinations such as the Great Wall of China,
For us that live here, the fjords are more than often considered hinderings to communication. Due to the many blue veins penetrating our west coast it can take hours to cover rather short distances. Sometimes you come around a bend and see the target of your journey just on the other side of what seems a small stream of crystal blue water. However, it will take you one hour to drive into the bottom of the fjord and the same back out on the other side. For some this might cause serious frustration, and they build bridges. For others they make excellent motives.
PS! Norwegian fjords are stunning, but if someone like to see more images from the Antarctic trip in November they are now just available at Nature Picture Library on this link. www.naturepl.com
All images are taken with the amazing Nikon D3x in Hardanger and Lysefjorden, the Pulpit Rock.

Lately I have been working with a new design for my website www.wildphoto.no. Finally I feel comfortable publishing the site, and now I can't wait to hear your response.
The WildPhoto website is not a large display of my archives, even if there are some updated galleries, but more a presentation to what WildPhoto has to offer. Feel free to take the tour, and visit my image library partners Samfoto and Nature Picture Library to see more of my images.
I would like to take the opportunity to mention the fine publishing solution called Destinet, created by the marketing company Destino, used on the WildPhoto website. It is easy to use and simple to update. So now I have no excuse for not keeping my website up to date.
